The dining set is divided into two packages. Heavy ones. Very easy to assemble. Four kinds of screws. Different sizes. Easy to recognize them without making mistakes. The size is perfect in my 1000 sqft apartment's dining area. 4 chairs plus a two-seat bench. Everything was perfect. When considering the tiny dining set starting from $129 in IKEA, this dining set is a great value. Perfect for families. Very stable. You might also need to make adjustments to the chairs. Get the wooden seat screwed first and then attach the metal legs. This could make it easier.
Overall: just put together the table and love it. It fits really well in my open kitchen and does have the appearance of wood although it's a plastic material. Pretty lightweight but feels sturdy. Great value and easy to assemble. More details below.
Packaging/Delivery: package was delivered faster than initially quoted by Amazon. Arrived in two large boxes. Both were somewhat heavy so would recommend a dolly or a second person to help carry. Every piece is individually wrapped in plastic and protected by Styrofoam so no damages upon arrival.
Assembly: exactly enough screws are provided to complete the set so don't lose any. Allen wrench is provided although I stripped it down to the point it was pretty much useless by the time I finished tightening the last chair. I would absolutely recommend not tightening the screws all the way until you've managed to get every screw into place. Some of the screw holes aren't drilled perfectly in alignment so it required a little elbow grease to put into place. If you fully tighten screws on one side before securing the other, it might not align. I was worried about this during assembly but it all seems very sturdy now that it's finished. If I have any issues down the line, I'll adjust my review. Overall easy to follow the pictures for assembling and just like adult legos. Took me about 1.5 hours in total to complete assembly for table and all chairs.
The first thing I have to say is that for the price I’m surprised at how nice it looks and how sturdy it is. I ordered it last Monday and it arrived in 3 days on Thursday. Of course, being new I don’t have anything bad to say but even if it crumbled in pieces in 6 months I’m sure I’m gonna be happy still.I recommend everyone with small space and on a budget to buy it, you won’t be disappointed.
